PDFRA alterations in brain tumors

Started Feb. 28, 2022

Abstract or project description

The student will write a review article about PDFRA alterations in brain tumors. The student will conduct literature searches to summarize the following: the impact of radiation treatment on PDGFRA alteration development in certain brain tumors, PGFRA alteration frequency in brain tumors (focusing on glioblastoma), other genetic alterations that commonly co-occur with PGFRA in brain tumors, and the impact of PGFRA alterations on key cellular pathways. By the end of this project, the student will produce an interesting piece of writing that expertly discusses PDGFRA genetic alterations in brain tumors.
